Who Was Cain's Wife?



Question: “As Cain was Adam and Eve’s son, where did the woman Cain married come from? Did people exist before Adam and Eve?”



Bible Answers

Of those the Bible mentioned prior to the flood, the average lived to an age of 912 years.  The days of Adam after he fathered Seth were 800 years; and he had other sons and daughters (Genesis 5:4).  


We do not know how many more sons and daughters they had and we do not know how old Cain was when he killed Abel. Dependent on the reproduction rate at that time, it is estimated the minimum world’s population was greater than 50,000 at the time Abel may have been killed.  


Cain’s wife had to be a daughter, or grand daughter, or great grand daughter, or great great grand daughter of Adam.
